From launch time until the end of the year, the company is planning to build 100 million of the new smartphones, a massive number.
Most expect the Galaxy S IV to at least be unveiled in March or April, if not released then.
"The enormous 100 million S4 build plan (we estimate the S3 sold 60M) is leading some suppliers to say that they will reallocate resources away from Apple," added Misek. "The S3 also had enormous builds and came within 10% of meeting them on an annual basis."
Samsung's new flagship is expected to have a 5-inch SuperAMOLED+ display, an 8-core processor, and enhanced graphics performance.
